Nairobi is a tourism destination

An authentic ‘Maasai sun viser’?

Being in Kenya during elections is both unpredictable and hilarious.. From men carrying and even hiring babies to jump queues 

to even more creative ones above that work at beating the game

And unlike how many are made to view African  leadership senators were ordinary citizens while voting

Including the vice president queued like any ordinary citizen

Some Asian communities chose service to voters giving out sweets to those on queues 

The elderly were also taken care of by family members including being carried on backs by daughters to ensure they made their constitutional choices 

Meanwhile security personnel during their free breaks freely reached out to all cadres of citizens like this one who took time to trim a street boys nails in Nairobi 

Then there was the citizenry on social media that made sure we were entertained, even making celebrity of ordinary citizens going about their business (google ‘GitheriMan’)

 hooded vulture (Necrosyrtes monachus) is an Old World vulture in the order Accipitriformes, which also includes eagles, kites, buzzards and hawks. It is the only member of the genus Necrosyrtes and is native to sub-Saharan Africa. It is a scruffy-looking, small vulture with dark brown plumage, a long thin bill, bare crown, face and fore-neck, and a downy nape and hind-neck. It typically scavenges on carcasses. Although this is a common species, numbers of these birds are decreasing rapidly. (wikipedia)​

Now a rare species thats seen South of the Sahara including Kenya its value as a live bird is steadily rising

Fishing in neighboring Muranga


Pied kingfisher along a Muranga River

Watching this ‘Master Kingfisher’ continuously seeking vantage points along the River from palm trees to 10+ meter tree tops to bridges, then meticulously dive totally unconcerned about your presence and off to a perch to consume his catch. I quietly ask myself what type of fish can be caught OR seen along these rivers?

It doesn’t take long to get answered as some 100meteres down the river i sport a local adjusting his net in the river.

45 minute later (almost midday) a young man cheerfully passes us and hangs this

another fish species which he expertly clears away it’s scales (see chipping bit’s on upper side of his knife)… and as i comment about it’s size he says “this is a baby” we frequently catch 2-3 times this length though if your not on time there’s another “fisherman” in the river who ensures you pull out only the head of your catch. But we fish him out too and eat him – very tasty!!

Meanwhile those unable to venture into the rivers can only admire desiringly this mans lunch as it takes knowledge and courage to venture into those waters that are also home to 1metre plus lizards and river horses..
